Strange compiler error and unknown file icon

I have reopened an old project and now for some reason it does not compile any more.
There is a special class which has a strange icon: class file with a black cross. (see the screen shot attached).
The compiler only says: cannot find symbol class TagEvent. The file itself can be compiled without problems. A rebuild and cache cleaning did not help.
Has anyone seen this kind of file symbol and knwos what it means. I renamed the file, checked all permissions and so on.
Other projects compile fine. It is Idea 8.1 #9732, JDK 1.6.0_12.

Thanks for any suggestions
Thomas

The icon means that file is excluded from compile

Thanks alot Maxim. Indeed, the file was excluded. The documentation "Icon reference" is missing this icon type.
However, now I become an other strange error: "JSR/RET are not supported with computeFrames option"
A while ago I confirmed a bug report already filed: http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEA-20180
Now even the workaround (cleaning all output directories) does not help in this.

I did compile the project via an ant task and now it works within Idea as well.
